It’s not easy to say, but fact is that there are a lot of designs where a football is some part of it. Somehow designers all over the world find inspiration in this item. Of course there is a lot of clothing decorated with footballs, but one will find them at curtains, blankets, bedclothes, party stash, boxes, wallpaper, pencils and other school materials as well. And much more.
Maybe the football represents something we like to be identified with. It does certainly signal activity and joy, but also movement and mastering, not to mention development.
For this sweater, the inspiration was most of all the joy in a child’s face, when playing with a ball. To see how much fun a child has in just watching a ball bouncing.
